Beaches & Outdoors

Naples' year-round sunny weather is perfect for exploring the outdoors. Despite being in one of the fastest growing areas in the country, Naples and surrounding Collier County still maintains many of its natural features and attractions.

You'll find beautiful surroundings, warm sands and spectacular sunsets no matter where you choose to lose your shoes and dip your toes in the sand.

In addition to the sugar-white sand beaches for which Naples is famous, Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast is home to a massive ecosystem. Rent a kayak or a canoe for a day and explore all of the pristine bays, inlets, estuaries, and mangrove forests that house our many natural resources.

Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve are two of our most famous, but we also have many state, local and private parks and preserves perfect for viewing birds and other wildlife and enjoying outstanding outdoor recreation, including nature photography, fishing, hiking and boating.

You might also consider taking an airboat ride through the Florida Everglades, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. You'll be able to see firsthand the indigenous wildlife and plant life that make this internationally famous area so important to the environment.

Visitors to the area may purchase a Collier County beach parking sticker for $50 that is good for one year from the date of purchase.
